You're a Pedestrian, Act Like One In France roller skates and other wheeled contraptions are considered as games, rather than means of transportation, and are therefore not subject to any specific regulation. Indeed from a legal standpoint the French Traffic Code states that skaters are considered pedestrians and must therefore abide by the same rules. ...

If you do this, I'd advise you to be extraordinarily careful at intersections. Motorists making turns are, at best, looking for pedestrians moving at normal walking speeds in crosswalks. A right turning driver isn't necessarily going to see you speeding up to the corner from behind on your skates. This kind of accident is depressingly common when people ride ...

Inline Skates would be more practical to use in the USA because they would provide a smoother ride than Quad style Skates. The larger the wheels are on Inline Skates the smoother the ride with them will be, however they will require more effort to get up to speed, and the top speed of the larger wheels will be quite a bit faster than smaller wheels, so if ...

(I'm unsure of the legality of roller-skating as transport in these cities.) It's not necessarily frowned upon, just extremely unusual (roller-skating as a means of transport is uncommon in the USA). Note that sidewalks in all of these cities may be quite irregular, i.e. bumpy -- the norm is concrete slabs, which may have fissures between them. Also common ...

At $80 from the airport directly to Jasper vs $40+ from city center you value your time at nearly nothing. You will waste considerable time traveling to downtown, and then waiting until midnight for the bus. All for about $30. Or you can land at the airport, get on a highway bus and be in Jasper in about 5 hours.

Via Rail has service from Edmonton to Jasper every Sunday, Tuesday and Friday, and return service every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. The lowest fare I could find was $182.70 return. Probably not what you want. Greyhound Canada has daily service (though it leaves Edmonton at 12:30 am!) and I was quoted a price of $72.70 return for a 14-day advance ...

Going by road from Gatwick Airport into central London is always a stressful and time consuming journey. Depending on your actual destination (there is no single point that classes as "London downtown"), take the train either Southern (not the overpriced Gatwick Express) to Victoria, or change at Clapham Junction for Waterloo. or Thameslink to ...

Train is the fastest and bus is the cheapest means of transportation for that route. For a departure in seven days I found the following: Train: 29 EUR, ~ 2h45 Bus: 18 EUR, ~ 4h00 For a departure today, there are still bus tickets available at 18 EUR. The train fare is 80 EUR in that case. If you are fine with travelling on local and regional trains, ...

Have a look at Mitfahrgelegenheit. Its search will show you "Sparpreis" fares on the Bahn, busses, and people offering rides in private cars in exchange for gas money. You might also want to look at l'tur. The "Bahnreisen" section has cheap connections for one country every month. If that happens to be Switzerland, you can get a direct ICE to Basel that ...

I also checked in on the Bahn.de site and found that it is a 2 hour plus journey, even by fast train. That means that there is likely no local buses that can make your journey fast and cheap, there are long distance buses and you will find more lower down this answer. The standard cost of the tickets is €80. The savings fare means that you book your ticket ...

Since this question had been first posted and answered there have been a few new developments in the long term rental space. So if you decide that you need a car for 1-6 months it may be better to use long term rentals instead of buying a car. For example: Relay Rides - on this site you can rent a car from a private party although the selection may not ...

Monsoon would be on the full swing in last week of July. Amount of rain will differ depending upon which part of the country you are in.India is a huge country. Rajasthan for example in some parts wont see any rain atall and may be a few drops if they get lucky this year. Nothing stops in India and as long as you stay away from the flood prone areas of ...

The treehouses are run by the National Park and can be booked online, however getting and back again could be problematic, as you would need to prearrange round trip transport. The village of Thong Pha Phum will have only few song teaws and motorcycle taxis. I doubt you will find a taxi. You are also going during rainy season, so clouds will obscure the ...
